It took me more than half a year to come to terms with the fact that I lost all the photos I took when I went to KL last September for a weekend getaway. The only few photos rescued were displayed here, of some cupcakes and mini cheesecake cups I bought at Cupcake Chic and The Loaf, respectively. I bought half a dozen for each, but I only had the pictures of some of them.

::The Loaf @ Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur

Recommended by a friend who had tried this cheesecake in cup before. Yummy. They have their website if you are interested to know more.

Mini U-hu-hu
Luxurious Chocolate
Glitzy Strawberries

Blueberry Treasures
::Cupcake Chic
For cupcake lovers, this is where you should go to. Good cupcakes, especially stores that specialize on them, are sort of rare in Singapore and Malaysia, as far as I know. So when I found this cupcake heaven in Pavilion KL, I was very delighted. The pricing was alright and it really worth at least a try. For me, I would definitely come back for it again.
This should be 'On Cloud 9', chocolate marshmallow cake with chocolate frosting
...and this I think is 'Persian Love', pistachio cake with rosewater frosting
I really can't recall the name for this one, although I have been searching high and low from the list of their available cupcakes and trying to match the definitions with the appearance.
Visit Found: the name of the last cupcake. It is 'Naughty 'n Nice'! Should have gone to their website earlier instead of sticking to their brochure. =|

PS.Cafe and La Fondue @ Dempsey Hill

28B Harding Road, Singapore 249549

The time my friend and I went to Dempsey Hill, it was raining cats and dogs. Instead of taking taxi, which seems to be the norm for visitors to the place with no car, we decided to walk from the bus stop opposite Dempsey Road. It was not the most convenient way of course, and to add to our desperate situation, I forgot to bring my umbrella, which meant that two people had to share the same umbrella. Finding PS.Cafe wasn't easy either. After a few wrong turns we found what we missed on our first try. We reached the cafe at 5.30 and quickly made an on-the-spot reservation for dinner, which started from 6.30 onwards.

Double Chocolate Blackout Cake served with vanilla ice cream ($14.90). This was the best of our orders that day, and my saying so was really not because of my strong inclination to desserts and sweets. The chocolate coating was rich and super sinful while the cake itself was velvety and moist. It came with a very big serving and even if you are not on diet, I am sure you need to share it with at least another person.

PS. Fish & Chips ($28). The three strips of fish were disappointingly so-so. On my first cut, I discovered that they were rather oily. I wonder how it could cost me that much. The fries were crispy and good, alleviating a bit of my disappointment on the fish.
Chicken Rossa Penne ($24), grilled chicken, penne pasta, smoked bacon, spinach & mixed mushrooms tossed with garlic tomato light cream sauce. My friend said it was ordinary.

:: La Fondue
25 Dempsey Road #01-04
After making reservation at PS.Cafe we headed towards La Fondue. My friend actually wanted to try cheese fondue but after seeing the menu, I really preferred some sweet things so I persuaded her to go for chocolate fondue instead. The prices of all the fondues were sky high. If you are on a budget, this is definitely not your piece of cake. The restaurant itself had a kinda romantic ambience with Mexican music playing at the background.
Cookies and Cream ($38). Was good, fortunately, especially after considering the price we paid for it.

All prices exclude applicable taxes.
A few snapshots on the way...
